New study shows risks of climate change in Germany

The German Environment Agency has presented the "Climate Impact and Risk Assessment 2021“. If climate change continues unchecked, the risks from heat, drought and heavy rainfall throughout Germany will increase sharply in the future, the study says. The damage will have a knock-on effect on ecosystems that are already heavily polluted, such as soils, forests and water bodies, and on humans and their health. The study also shows that many of these risks can only be reduced through immediate action as many adaptation measures take a very long time to become effective.
